Billed as One Night Only, Warren Haynes, John Medeski, George Porter Jr. and Joe Russo teamed up last Friday at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY to benefit debra for America. The all-star line-up got together to raise awareness of the rare painful genetic disease, Epidermolysis Bullosa, commonly known as EB and “the worst disease you’ve never heard of.” When Warren got wind of this horrible disease that affects kids and was asked to play, he quickly reached out to George, John and Joe who were all free. The rest is history
The two sets included tons of classic covers from Jimi Hendrix, Allman Brothers Band, Gov’t Mule and more.
The once in a lifetime line-up also included sit-ins from Skerik on saxophone on nearly half of both sets including a raging solo on the back-half of “Hey Joe.”
